Question mark cookies

We used this recipe for the dough, which is perfect in every way: it rolls out nicely, it keeps its shape when baked, and it tastes great.

For decorating, we mixed 1/4 teaspoon of water with one egg yolk and added five drops food coloring. Paint before baking.

I turned my back while Red Chief was painting and when I looked he had devoured two raw question marks, a little man, and the letters C and D.  He was also playing Super Why with the question mark–shaped cookie cutter.

And since we're talking about punctuation, I just have to say that I love my new Mac because it's so easy to type an en dash.
